Slieve Bloom Moderate Hike

20th April @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm


The Slieve Bloom hills rise out of the central plain of Ireland to a height of 527 metres. Though not high, they are a significant feature in this otherwise flat landscape, and are home to a number of rare species of birds, mammals and plants that make the upland bogs and river fed valleys their home. Good waterproof boots or shoes and waterproof clothing; hiking trousers are advised, spare warm layer; hat and gloves; lunch and/or snacks; water or juice drink, small rucksack to carry it all in.
